Thinking about writing

After an interesting discussion on #engchatuk last evening and having read a post by David Didau on writing with precision :  http://www.learningspy.co.uk/writing/black-space-increasing-lexical-density/  I have prepared this for my KS 4 students.

The idea is to take David’s clarification of a short analytical passage about Julius Caesar and to present the process to the students.  I have then added a few phrases which are designed to engage in “zooming in” to key words or phrases…

Use or abuse, as usual!
